Benefits Of Wearing Ankle Sleeves & Braces

The purpose of an ankle sleeve is mainly to keep your toes and foot pointed forward and prevent them from rotating inward. As you step off a curb or stair, or run on bumpy, uneven surfaces, you tend to twist or rotate your ankle joint, causing sprains (stretching and tearing of ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues).

Ankle braces are often prescribed by coaches, primary care physicians, orthopaedic specialists, and podiatrists to help prevent further ankle injuries. In addition to reducing acute and chronic pain, bracing limits the development of scar tissue and arthritis.

A ankle brace is a tool used in conjunction with casts, surgery, physical therapy, exercising, targeted training, and other forms of medical intervention.

Which Ankle Brace or Sleeve Should I Choose?

The most common ankle brace is a simple fabric sleeve, also called an ankle sleeve or a foot sleeve.

A strap-style brace can also provide stability. As an alternative to traditional ankle taping, they are easy to adjust to fit more loosely or tightly.

A ASO brace or a lace-up ankle brace combine the benefits of several braces. Their stable and easy to wear design makes them particularly suitable for long-term wear. They may come with velcro straps and laces as well.

Ankle Brace: When Should I Wear It?

When wearing your ankle brace as a preventative device, you should wear it while performing any activity that exposes your ankle to lateral movements, such as tennis, basketball, or volleyball.

You should wear your ankle brace during any daily activities if your ankle brace is used for rehabilitation or treatment. This will provide you with more stability and prevent re-injury.

Why do you need an Ankle Brace?

 

Understanding why you need to wear an ankle brace is essential. Your ankle is protected from injury by ligaments, muscles, tendons, and the bones in your ankle, which work together to form internal support structures. In order for you to walk, run, and play properly, these internal support structures are essential. An ankle brace provides external support for these internal structures. 

An ankle brace restricts certain types of movements, such as plantar flexion, which is turning your foot inward towards your leg while pointing your foot downward while pointing it away from the leg. Ankle injuries can result from this. Using the ankle brace, the body and brain are aware of where the ankle joint is located. When you are performing an activity, your ankle brace should fit comfortably inside your shoes to achieve maximum effectiveness.
